Sweet Memories with Susie

Hello and welcome! Susie hosting the blog today with a fall themed layout featuring the Honeycomb collection!

The nice thing about working within a collection is that all of the papers are designed to coordinate. I started with Honeycomb 103 as the background and then matted the photo on the orange side of Honeycomb 102.

I cut pieces from other papers in the collection and inked the edges with Barn Board and Navy PowderPuff Chalking Inks.  I layered them behind the photo and added strip journaling and a tag!

The colors in this collection are perfect for your pumpkin patch pictures - oranges, blues, a soft green and creamy off-white.

Grateful for You with Alicia

Good morning Quick Quotes readers, Alicia posting today with some fall inspiration. Quick Quotes papers are so beautiful and their Powderpuff Chalking Inks are so versatile.  
I wanted the leaves on my fall card to reflect the colors of the paper not an ink.  I decided to go with an emboss resist technique to highlight the beautiful fall colors of the papers.

Steps for emboss resist technique
  1. Stamp images with Versamark Ink on Quick Quotes paper of your choice
  2. Apply clear embossing powder and heat set
  3. Die cut or fussy cut image
  4. Ink generously with Powderpuff Chalking Ink of your choice 
Here are examples of before and after of inking with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking Ink.  You can see all the details of the stamped leaf image just pop after inking!

Here's a close up of my pile of leaves. I just love how the emboss resist technique!  I layered on a thin layer of Urban Oasis 102 paper to bring in more color and added all the layers to a goldenrod card stock

Quick Quotes Products:
Earth, Wind & Fire 101 exclusively available at Quick Quotes Private Reserve and Mini Reserve 

Other Products Used:
Sara Davies Autumn Morning Stamps and Dies
Versamark Ink
Wow Clear Embossing Powder

Give Thanks with Martha

Hello dear friends, it's Martha Lucia hosting the blog today. I made this card using a mix of papers from different collections and one of my favorite stamp sets for the fall season.

Of course I used my PowderPuff Chalk Ink to stamp my images because I love how it looks on my papers. Take a look at my card:


I created this card with a pocket style thinking that it could also be an envelope. I can put a note or gift card inside. Making this was very simple:
  1. Cut the base of the card. The size is 4-1/4"x11" and I used the Chiffon 104 to create this.
  2. Make a score line in 5-1/2" and then in 1-1/2" to create the pocket.
  3. Fold the last score in the opposite side and paste over the green side.
  4. Decorate the border with a tiny line of Whistlin Dixie 108.
  5. Stamp the different leaves of the stamp set over different pieces of Whistlin Dixie 108, Chiffon 101 and Urban Oasis 103. I used Powder Chalk Ink Mahogany, Evergreen and Rusty Nail respectively.
  6. Fussy cut the leaves with the scissors and paste over the border.
  7. Decorate the union of the leaves with a button.
  8. Stamp the sentiment using Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

Family Time with Connie

Hi, Connie here with a scrapbook page using the Earth Wind Fire Collection (coming soon) by Quick Quotes. Can't wait to share the full collection with you. Consider this a sneak peek!

Instructions to this are easy.  Use a favorite border punch to create a fun border and then punch another one. So, two punched borders. Shade both of the borders with PowderPuff Chalk Inks. I'll list the ink names at the end. Over lap them and adhere them to the side of the strip of paper, that has the photos on it.

Add color to the small camera embellishment using PowderPuff Chalk Ink. Set aside. Using a stencil and PowderPuff Chalk Ink a chevron design was stenciled in random places on the pattern paper.

Collage the stickers at the bottom and title your page.

Quick Quotes Products:
Earth Wind Fire Collection (coming soon) ~ 108 and 105
Whistlin' Dixie : Die Cut Chipboard and Die Cut Stickers
PowderPuff Chalk Ink: Midnight Confessions, Peach Tree and Barn Board

Mixing it Up with Alicia!

Alicia here today with a two page layout mixing up several different paper collections. They all coordinate so well together! 

I started with the brand new lines Honeycomb and Earth, Wind & Fire available exclusively at QQ Private and Mini Reserves.  I also added some Whistlin' Dixie and 49 Shades of Grey. They all come together to make a great fall layout.

Here are the individual pages. I used both fussy cutting with templates and electronic cutting to create the titles and shapes. I crumpled the leaves and grass to add some dimension to the layout without adding pop dots. I love the texture it added but still remains basically flat.

I cut the blue paper with a template and used the reverse on the opposite page, I measured to have them meet perfectly at the seem.

And a close up seem of the pages, I love to have a little bit of "overlap" for continuity.  

Quick Quotes Products:
Honeycomb - 101 (leaves)
Honeycomb - 102 (title)
49 Shades of Grey - 104 (soccer ball)
Earth, Wind & Fire 107, 108 and 110 exclusively available at Private Reserve and Mini Reserve

September Club Q with Susie

Hello and welcome!  Susie hosting the blog today and I am sharing a couple of projects I created using the September Club Q kit. I started with this 2 page layout which is all about my daughter getting her braces off!

I used the elements from the "So Happy" Premier Page kit and created a layout with simpler lines.

I added in some blue cardstock as photo mats...

... and played with the different sentiments I trimmed out of the cut apart sheet.

I sprinkled the laser cut flowers over both pages...

...and included a bit of ribbon in my journaling area.

For my next project I created a door hanger! There are several laser cut chipboard frame elements in the September Club Q Kit. They are 4" wide.

I cut a 4" strip from one of the pages and then traced the shape of the chipboard frame on the back. I trimmed it out and then attached the chipboard to the back for extra support. I decorated it with a sentiment, flowers and chipboard buttons that were also included in the kit.

Blessings with Martha

Hello dear friends, Martha Lucia hosting the blog today.

I made this card using die cuts and a mix of papers from different collections. My style is usually clean and simple and I love to use papers with different colors and patterns to make my creations more vibrant. Take a look at my card:


Creating this card was very simple:
  1. Cut the base. The size is 4-1/4"x11" with score in 5-1/2"
  2. Cut a second layer using the orange side of the Whistlin' Dixie 108
  3. Pass this layer through the big shot with the texturing impression embossing folder Woodgrain
  4. Ink the raised up side with Khaki PowderPuff Chalk Ink and paste it over the card base
  5. Cut the Delicate Flower Wreath die three or four times using the beige side of Urban Oasis 103 and paste these only partially or from the center sides using glue dots to have the major part of the wreaths free
  6. Cut the Blessing Die using one piece of the Urban Oasis 100 and paste over the wreaths
  7. Cut some Little Bird Dies using the blue side of Urban Oasis 100
  8. Paste the 3D wreath using dimensionals over the embossing layer and decorate with the birds
  9. To finalize the decoration cut a tiny border using Urban Oasis 103 and paste over the right side of the card
